The story of the Pilgrims

Thanksgiving Day is the fourth Thursday in November, but many Americans take a day of vacation on the following Friday to make a four-day weekend, during which they may travel long distances to visit family and friends.

O Día de Acción de Gracias celébrase en Estados Unidos o 4º xoves de Novembro, pero moitos amaricanos toman o seguinte venres festivo para facer un fin de semana de catro días e, deste modo, poder recorrer longas distancias para visitar a familiares e amigo.

Do you Know why we have Thanksgiving Day? We celebrate Thanksgiving Day because of Pilgrims and Native Americans.

Here you have a presentation  to learn more about this celebration.

And here you have the story of Pilgrims adapted for the youngest.

Thanksgiving Day is a holiday celebrated in USA and Canada.

It is celebrated each day on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the USA, which this year (2011) is November 24th.

Thanksgiving Day in America is a time to offer thanks, of family gatherings and holiday meals. A time of turkeys, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. A time for Indian corn, holiday parades and giant balloons.

Para atopar o sombreiro tes que cantar:
If you want to find the hat, sing:<
Santa , Santa, Where is your hat?
You can´t go outside looking like that.

E ó final, dille a Papa Noel:

And when you find the hat, sing:

Santa, Santa, you found your hat.
You can go outside like that.
